Mood Musik: I Am Your Mind – Roy Ayers

The Grand Genius Roy Ayers wrote these fantastic lyrics for the Virgin Ubiquity II album in 1976… Celebrating this Virgo, in season, with reason. Reminiscent and real. Oh, how his words reveal – truth. This is I Am Your Mind Pt. 2

Your mind your mind
Your mind your mind
(If you believe in yourself)
Your mind your mind (You’ll know the real you)
Your mind your mind (Its coming from within) (Sincerely)
Your mind your mind (Sincerely)
I am your mind
(You subject yourself to being vulnerable)
(Not knowing why you fall in love)
(And so you become)
(What you are made to become)
(Its not that often)
(That I feel as I do)
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
My sister
I am your mind
Within you is a never-ending magnitude of
Indefinite strength, wisdom, and will
You travel my roads through life
Never knowing your own true reality
Because my thoughts remain like distant quasars
You abuse me
By never letting me say and do as I feel
Our thoughts split from love affairs to joys of friends
We argue like two enemies
Yet we are good friends
Now there are moments when we harmonize with each other
And become one with nature and reality
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
But these times are few
When after you have replenished yourself
The fear of the truth sets in
We split, and you start to run again
Running, running, running
Running through women, men, jobs, people, and life
Looking for the answer
When I had it all along
But I smile
Because I am your mind
I was your mind yesterday
I am your mind today
And I’ll be your mind tomorrow
And as our end draws near
We will become closer
But you and I
You and I
We will never be one
For I’ll part form you
And you will part from me
You finding another mind
And I another soul
We will travel on
And on
By the way
I need more than sex to nourish my equilibrium
But I do need sex
I also need sun, trees, stars, creativity and love
But you saturate my soul with too much of one
And not enough of the other
Therefore I cry
But why do we cry
Because tears cleanse the windows of our minds
I am your mind
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
All your thoughts inside your mind
Wanting to be free
Well now you’ve got the chance to make your mind grow
And be free
Because the music is just trying to say things to free your mind
Then you can understand why
There’s no need to be afraid of me
I want to be your friend
I’m just trying to give you music from deep deep
Deep deep within
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
All of your dreams can become reality
My dial reaches full
But you’ve only been turning me halfway
Turn me up
And alpha and beta waves will spew from your pores
And knowledge, peace, happiness, and prosperity will be placed at your feet
Let’s
Let’s create
Solve
Love
Accomplish
And unify
As-Salaam-Alaikum

Mysteries of Life

It is increasingly difficult to understand how creative beings can speak of consciousness or getting to the next level and yet always be so angry. There is no need for that to continue. Meditate on a powerful and peaceful journey and begin to embrace the Hrt… The Hurt and the Heart. Healing is within reach.

Ntr/Neteru – Attributes for Survival

I am the almighty ANKH
…Constructed from wire and wisdom
Here to wreak havoc on the evil intentions
And ascend onto high plains with the CREATOR FORCE – the dark matter.

The talisman that holds the power
From which you reveal the strength and structure.
I and the she, the goddess, in whom you dwell
until that day when all turn inward to greatness. My magnetic level stings in birth, pierces the earth and becomes master of self.

" People think that I'm crazy, just cause I wanna be alone
You can't depend on friends to help you in a squeeze
We all deal with sh.t on our own
And sometimes the beef can grow, get out of hand
Yeah, you know it gets full blown
I never said that you mean the world to me
Maybe it's best that you never know
"

Delightful Read with a Soundtrack…

Dangerous Queen…
Making music, mistakes, and babies.
Listening, learning, reading, writing.
Exciting every brotha in her gaze, dumbfounded and twisted in her maze.
She is fire and desire, burning the souls of cash money makers and rhyme slayers alike. Intellectuals and sell-outs.
They all love this culture crooner, exemplifying the kuumba.
Frightening love maker, ’cause her sexuality penetrates the minds of many.
She be selective with the penetrators.
Only the way true Queen get down.
Not pointless pumping from clowns, only cultivators who plant the seed deep.
Deep into womb, exposing orange moons, the doula dances to her own rhythm.
 
Influencing the protégés, they are in need of courage and spirit and voice.
Still crushing critics with creativity.
Falling off the radar, then blasting the charts, hearts and souls of her love affair fans. This danger queen be bombing, sounding the alarm when the masses get caught up.
She spinning webs like cameras on celebs, coating and cloaking the eyes,
often operating in disguise.
Flawed and fearless, shameful and tainted, but the queen still dips and delves in Motherland moves and righteous grooves.
The babies be made and born and paid and adorned by daddies.
Cyphers and talismans, smudging the challenges.
Danger queen on the scene.
 
 
 
She be on the Other Side, serving as Master Teacher,
cuz she a Suthin Gurl,
 
 
She be a beast wit it.
Don’t look her in the eyes, your third eye may go blind.
That’s how her power pushes through the elements.
You had best be on point, or soon become irrelevant.
No love is lost, just bring it or be tossed.
Nothing wrong with standing for what you believe in, right Ms. Wright?
 
Well fact is, she is honest and fearless and I still love her.
Give me the chance and I’ll take her, make her my Mrs, make her my business.
 
I could go on and on and on and on.
My eternal muse making me moan and yearn and groan and burn.
Sho nuff, my heart is foreva on fire for this Dangerous Queen.  Ya dig?
 
Peace.
